Rub Rail Restore

I'm not sure how the PO painted the rub rail, but it is cracking and running white streaks down the hull. The rails are rubber. I would love to restore them. Would anyone have any suggestions as to how to go about this? Is the rubber too old to sand and paint? Would Acetone break it down further?
What would you paint it with?

Re: Rub Rail Restore

My Cal 29 rail was so rock hard when i removed it there was nothing that could be done with it as 40 years of UV had killed it

The good news is the new one i got fit well and after 3 years continues to be easy to keep white

This is a white flexible pvc rub rail used on older Cal Sailboats built in the 70's

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
